- Jesus was going to be betrayed by one of them
- His blood would be shed for many
- They would desert Him in fulfillment of Zechariah’s prophecy
- Peter would deny Him three times
It must have been hard and seemed impossible that one of them would betray their beloved Lord; that He would die; that they would all desert Him and that Peter, one of the three who were close to Jesus, would deny knowing Him. Later they saw for themselves that all these things came to pass.
Let us not deny Jesus. Let us confess Him before everyone. Let us not scatter but remain close to Him. Let us not betray Him by conforming to this world or holding on to sins or things in our lives that would separate us from Him. Let us not put ourselves, others, the world or anything before Him. Let us put Him first in our lives, thoughts and hearts.
